Citizens across the United States are fed up with widespread illegal immigration, and it is no longer an isolated problem for border states. Overcrowded schools, over-extended social services, and strained hospitals are bearing the brunt, and lawful taxpayers are left picking up the tab.
In Congress, I have made a commitment to securing our borders, improving enforcement of current immigration laws, assisting local law enforcement, and denying "amnesty" to illegal aliens in the United States. A bold course of action needs to be taken to regain the trust of the American people. Without it, we cannot begin to get a handle on the problem.
